USCIS Changes to H-1B Cap: New Year, New Proposals, Part 1

Erickson Immigration Group attorneys Justin Parsons, Jeff Quilhot, and Hiba Anver hosted a webinar on the latest proposal to modify the H-1B Cap program. The main points of the proposed changes include requiring petitioners to register electronically and reversing the order in which lottery selections are made to increase the number of individuals with a master’s degrees who are admitted into the country. USCIS argues this proposal will help save money for companies and petitioners during the process as well as attract higher skilled workers into the U.S.

EIG breaks down this proposal and analyzes it’s real-world implications if passed, and how would it affect companies and applicants this coming lottery season.
